Creating a Cost-Focused Culture

Thursday, August 13th @ 2:00 pm ET | 11:00 am PT
Manufacturers all have one thing in common – the need for an effective product costing process that delivers accurate and actionable results. Best-in-class finance teams are catapulting costing and cost transparency to the front of the list of strategic initiatives to transform their leaders’ ability to make decisions. If you’re struggling with the lack of ERP costing capabilities or overwhelmed with spreadsheets, you’ll find value in hearing how leading manufacturing companies have established robust product costing processes. This interactive discussion will highlight the three primary focus areas for product costing:

1. What is a strong costing culture and how do companies benefit?
2. Establishing costing as a competitive advantage to identifying opportunities and enabling strategies
3. Getting started on the path to better costing by defining the rules, tools, and data involved


 

#CostTalk Q+A: Using Product Costing to Guide Key Business Decisions

Tuesday, August 25th @ 2:00 pm ET | 11:00 am PT

For manufacturing companies, product cost information cannot exist in a silo. To compete, costing must transition from a static activity that occurs on a laptop spreadsheet to a collaborative approach where the right cost data can uncover the best decisions.

Join the next #CostTalk Q+A session with our guest, Paul Naliwajka – 3C Software’s Manager of Application Practices. He’ll share some of his experiences helping manufacturing finance, commercial, and operations teams find ways to best leverage cost data for decisions around pricing, new product development, and profitability analysis.


 

#CostTalk Q+A: Best Practices for Quoting in Dynamic Manufacturing Environments

For engineer-to-order, contract, outsourced, or other complex environments, the quoting process is more elaborate than the traditional CPQ process of picking a combination of options, and calculating a price. It requires inventing BOMs, assigning routings, maintaining versions, managing workflows, exposing risks, and identifying trends.

Join our #CostTalk Q+A conversation with Gaurav Batra from 3C Software’s professional services and implementation team. He’ll discuss his experiences establishing integrated Cost-Based Quoting programs that align the pricing, operations, finance, commercial teams to efficiently deliver more consistent, accurate, and robust quotes.
